Career

Picked late in the 2000 NFL Draft, Brady became the starting quarterback for the New England Patriots after Drew Bledsoe got hurt. He played surprisingly well and led New England to its first Super Bowl win in 2001.

Since then, he has won a record of five Super Bowl MVP awards (XXXVI, XXXVIII, XLIX, LI, LV) as well as three NFL MVP awards (2007, 2010, 2017).[1]

Brady was a 14 time NFL Pro-Bowler, an award given to outstanding players in the league at their position.

Brady is also famous for his number "12" as well as being married to supermodel Gisele Bundchen from 2009 to 2022.

On February 1, 2022, Brady announced his retirement after 22 seasons in the NFL, in an Instagram post.[2][3] However, several weeks later, he announced that he was not going to retire and would return to the NFL. On February 1, 2023, Brady announced his retirement in a Twitter post “for good” after 23 seasons in the NFL.
